Trooper Logs are a category of Lore in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. They are data logs recovered from the fallen GFMC Task Force Herakles, and detail their relationships and concerns on the planet Aether before their annihilation at the hands of Splinters. These logs do not represent every trooper, as many bodies were unidentifiable by the Scan Visor.
All of these Trooper Logs can be found in the GFMC Compound.
Man, I hope that is the only breeding ground for these things. If there's more, we're in big trouble. We had a hard enough time taking that one out of commission: I almost ran out of ammo. I never run out of ammo!
Last night at chow, Angseth starts talking about some bounty hunter and how she blew up a planet full of Space Pirates. I told her I didn't believe in fairy tales like that, and she took it personal. I just find it hard to believe that one person took out an entire Space Pirate base, that's all. But if she wants to believe in this Samus, or Bigfoot, or Santa Claus, she can.
I'm beginning to think it was a real bad idea going down here. Reevs is right, that hive is just one of many. It's stupid to stir a hornet's nest, especially if you plan on sleeping under it.
Everywhere. They're coming.
Can't sleep. Ever.
They'll eat me.
Brouda lost the bet, so he switched watch duty with me. I figure this section is nice and safe and boring, which suits me just fine. Let those other pugs guard the hot zone, I... hold on... hey! ...No! Hel--(transmission ends)
There's something wrong with the lock systems in this section. They've failed twice, locking us out until someone came along to let us in. If it happens again while we're playing "bait" for those things... well, at least we'll go out fighting, instead of hiding in the control area.
We'll be making our stand here. The engineer tells me there's no way we'll get the ship's engines online, and the atmospheric interference is scrambling our distress beacon. If anyone reads this, know that we did our duty and fought well.
I'm the only one left. Managed to get out of the hive, but when I got to the ship, everyone was gone... dead. I'm heading for that alien building we saw earlier. Maybe someone can help me there... Wait, something's moving down there. Hello...?
I don't like this plan. This hive is a small portion of a larger network. There may be dozens of hive systems like this across the planet, and they may all be linked. Destroying this one may buy us time, but it may also provoke the other hives into attacking.

Unused Logs[edit | edit source]
The data within the Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Bonus Disc contains more Trooper Logs than were seen in the final game, as well as slightly different versions of some of the Trooper Logs that were used.
The lieutenant thinks he's found a chamber the hostiles use as a breeding ground. He's taking us there to wipe it out, to take out their ability to replace their lost forces. Maybe we'll gain some ground after that's done.
The gas system is in place. I hope we have enough to get rid of all of these things. Everyone's low on ammo, and it looks like we're stuck here for some time. If this doesn't work, we're finished.
Our Command and Control chamber is secured. We are awaiting reinforcements and supplies. A few hostiles managed to escape; hopefully they won't come back with friends.
I'm beginning to think it was a real bad idea going down there. Reevs is right, that hive is just one of many. It's stupid to stir a hornet's nest, especially if you plan on sleeping under it. I'd rather take my chances on the surface, back at the ship...or out in that desert, with the Space Pirates.
Wish these damn things would get it over with. You want some? Come get some! Otherwise, get the hell out of my face.
Down to the five of us. Ivey's "phantom gunship" set down a while ago - it's not one of ours, and it's definitely not a Space Pirate boat. Whoever's in that ship is in for a treat, that's for sure. Hope they do better than we did here.
This bridge should be secure. The only person able to operate it was that alien that came down here earlier, and it's dead. Just as well; the last thing we need is another way those things can get to us and attack.
I thought I saw a blip on the long-range scanner this morning. It hasn't worked well since the attack, but I could swear I saw a Gunship of some kind dropping into N-space. Could be backup...or another... incoming! Incoming! IN---(transmission ends)
I swear I've seen these bugs before. There was an infestation on Devon III back when I was a green private; it took 2 cycles to cleanse the place. If these are the same bug, we're gonna need bigger guns. Bigger guns, and a lot more guys.
There's a new type of Splinter coming through the hive. It's darker, covered with some sort of protective substance. They're definitely more aggressive, and harder to kill than those previously encountered. These may be the warriors of the species, rather than the workers we're ran into so far.
The enemy keeps making raids, stealing what isn't bolted down. What they want with our gear, spare parts, and mess kits escapes me. What matters is that they've taken the parts we need to fix the engines. Unless we get them back, we're trapped on this hellhole.
